    4Th Wai This Time... Ugh, hammers so slow too, merc dealing all the damage!
    [​IMG]


    Loads of enemies here, still Mizan doing most of the damage.
    [​IMG]


    Several Town Runs for pots but nothing scary here, Duriel attacked me all the time.

    Last one to get through A2 is Laila, so let's get it done!

    Xia (Zon) - A4
    Laila (Sin) - A2
    Needler (Necro) - A3
    Bawz (Barb) - A3
    Frank (Pally) - A3
    Alysha (Sorc) - A4
    Yori_II (Druid) - A4

    -------------------------

    I realized that I'm allowed a 2 Act spread so that actually opened up a lot of options, I rolled between a 1&7 and for 6 so Alysha's turn was up and her A3 Adventure was a lot faster than anyone elses's, blizzard and teleport even on P8 makes things seem breezy!


    Spider Cavern Gave Rewards Of The Kings. :)

    Found some loot!
    [​IMG]


    Some green stuff. Cathans is a decent melee ring. :)
    [​IMG]


    Missed the drop but show the pop! :D
    [​IMG]


    Going to hold on to this for Alysha!

    Hi !
    Thank you for this thread, it's very pleasant to read, and very inspiring (as Jonesy_Pantz's thread) ! I love the random part ! :)
    I realize I never get a really hi-lvl HC character, and some class I barely played.
    And as I lost a huge part of my former characters, I'm very tempted to try this kind of challenge too, even if I know it will include several RIPs.

    @Chaostar

    Thanks for the feedback. :) I honestly didn't think people would enjoy all the screenshots and random chat, I'm not good at telling a story but I like the adventure. :)

    @Disposition I think it's all enjoyable. The nice part is that it gets even more enjoyable the longer it goes on because you're building up characters, a gear stash, and an overall narrative and ultimately the stakes go up and increasingly difficult decisions will need to be made. It's enjoyable early on to watch your characters grow, and it's enjoyable later on to watch them struggle!

    Shortly after I found a 3OS, will keep this one too. :)
    [​IMG]


    Finding all kinds of goodies, I'm sure Bawz would love this. :D
    [​IMG]


    Going to keep this, not putting any in to energy so mana pool has been really shallow.
    [​IMG]


    Two super unique rat packs....

    Maybe this can be made in to something better than bloodrise?

    Rolled a 2 which means Laila is finally up. :D


    Started with making a malice to help Haseen out.
    [​IMG]


    Got Radamant down, wasn't hard. CoS is pretty OP.
    [​IMG]


    Found the box of gifts shortly after. :)
    [​IMG]


    Killed me some maggots next and I do'nt think I've ever seen a map layout like this one.
    [​IMG]


    So far I would have to say that K/T is my least favorite hero I've made.... I honestly can't tell you why, I really just don' tlike her, it's probably more so I have no idea how to improve her and will have to go research kick material but right now my goal is :

    Talon 20?
    SW 20
    LS 20
    DS 20
    1 in to all preq's and bos ect

    That doesn't help me fix how to improve kick damage/how it actually works ect however.

    Xia (Zon) - A4
    Laila (Sin) - A3
    Needler (Necro) - A4
    Bawz (Barb) - A3
    Frank (Pally) - A4
    Alysha (Sorc) - A4
    Yori_II (Druid) - A4

    ---------------------------------------


    I have to say that Laila is by far my least favorite so far. It's probably because all I'm using at the moment is Talon/CoS but I also have no idea how to get her to deal more damage as we progress LOL.


    However with being done Laila, that means all heroes are up for grabs again in terms of progression so let's see who's next. :D



    ---------------------------------------


    Checked out the whole place.....
    [​IMG]


    Marc died, I said scrap it. :D Let's get the goods and run like Indiana Jones.
    [​IMG]


    I had found this on another character and thought it would be really good but damage doesn't change.
    [​IMG]


    First WAI!!!!!!!!!! LOVE IT
    [​IMG]



    Got All The WP's. :)
    [​IMG]



    Was a long but safe fight, SW is level 5 I think so tripple my HP and takes all the Agro from simpletons like Duriel.

    Well now that Laila finally got to A3 that oppened the door for all 7 heroes to be played! The First Roll was a 7!!!! So we get to play Yori_II yet again! It's been awhile. :D


    This fight took a really long time, fissure can really only hit 1-2 times per, I thought about killing Kasim and just getting Izzy to follow me at one point....
    [​IMG]


    Finally took him down, junk as usual!
    [​IMG]


    Close close, I like it. :D

    Going to hold on to this, I think it's better than some other stuff I'm using even without sockets.
    [​IMG]


    Flame Master Flex decided to be nice.
    [​IMG]


    Big D was a long fight but easy, lots of pots, I am not sure how melee will do in this fight... Sanders is always welcome however. :)
    [​IMG]


    These are mint aswell! Make melee a little easier anyways haha!
    [​IMG]


    I think this bow is good but I can't remember what Xia is waering.

    Assuming that SW means Shock Web, rather than Shadow Warrior, this can work well. I personally prefer Fire Blast over Shock Web.

    Get Laila into Greaves ASAP! Weapon damage doesn't matter for kicks; boot damage is everything. Personally, I replace Greaves with the first exceptional boots I find (Demonhide or Sharkskin), and keep upgrading boot damage even if it means using plain white boots.

    Crushing Blow should be a high priority. Crushflange or Rixot's Keen would be splendid; "Strength" in a Blade Talons or Scimitar would be at the top of my list, for speed. Blood Crescent is also an excellent kicking weapon for the level.

    @Zyr

    No I meant Shadow Warrior for a good tank, safer for HC I would think no?

    Thanks for tips on the rest of the stuff, will definitely look for some greaves. :) So STR is a huge factor in a K/T sin.

    Not necessarily. The Shadow Warrior needs incessant baby-sitting, because she can only use the skills currently assigned to the R and L mouse buttons, plus normal Attack. Her Dragon Talon is wimpy, because she has no boots. Her Trap damage, given the skills you have planned, will always be lower than the Assassin's-- and the Shadow's LS and DS will always overwrite the 'Sin's, because of the five trap maximum. You might find the Amazon Basin Wiki Shadow Warrior page to be worth a look. There is a place for a maxed Shadow Warrior, but this build isn't it. I've found it safer, and very effective, to rely on one point (plus skills) in Mind Blast to create temporary tanks as needed.

    Not necessarily. Once you can obtain and equip elite boots, the damage differential becomes much less significant. My highest level character is a level 91 Guardian K/T 'Sin wearing rare Wyrmhide boots. I have a level 89 Conqueror who also wears rare Wyrmhides, and a level ** Conqueror who kicks with crafted Wyrmhides. A level ** Guardian does her kicking with crafted Boneweave boots, and a level 84 Conqueror kicks with Sandstorm Trek Scarabshell boots. (Yes, I do have a Tiger Tailer/Trapper wearing upped Gore Riders, a couple more Dancers wearing double-upped Goblin Toe, and another wearing rare Mirrored Boots. What can I say? I'm just a 'Sinful guy. :rolleyes:) Big boots are nice, but not essential.

    More thoughts about weapons which might work well for Laila's youngster levels:

    Weapon damage doesn't matter, but speed is helpful, not only for DTalon but for Trap laying. The fastest base types easily available in Normal are Scimitar, Kris, and Bone Wand, all -20 WSM.

    CtC Amp is incredibly helpful against high HP monsters such as Act bosses, Izual and Hephasto. Normal Charsi sells two Scimitars each time her inventory is opened-- one non-magical (white or gray) and one magical. It shouldn't take too long to pick up a Scimitar of Amplify Damage and a 2 OS Scimitar for "Steel" (Tir El), with its yummy +50 To Attack Rating, 50% Chance Of Open Wounds, 25% Increased Attack Speed, and +2 To Mana After Each Kill.

    It may also be worth your while to pester Drognan for a Bone Wand with +Mana and/or +Energy. Laying traps is thirsty work.

    @Zyr

    Wow that is a lot of assasins over level 85 LOL, are they all HC? That's an insane ammount of dedication, I feel like I'm just a pea in the pod compared to you haha! I really apprecaite that information, I guess once I hit 30~ I will do a reset then and move some skills around, honestly thought SW would have been really useful.

    So FB/LS/DS/Talon is your recommendation then?

    Thanks for the infoamtion on boots/gear aswell, I will do my best to upgrade ASAP. I feel like someone has to be able to find greaves soon. :D I find the knockback on Talon is annoying, have to position myself betwen the mob and a wall/object for kick to actually be useful.

    --------------------------------

    I ended up rolling a 6 so we got to play Alysha again. :D I feel like she will probably die the fastest LOL I really enjoy teleporting when on every other character I run a lot but who knows, maybe I'll manage to not die and get her to Guardian. :D I feel like I'm going to end up doing a lot of farming on her to help other characters progress eventually. Farming on 1 for 7 I think is a lot more work than farming on 1 for 1. xD

    --------------------------------



    I love Static, makes life so simple. Wish every character had static LOL!
    [​IMG]


    Junk drops as usual but skills are always welcome. :D
    [​IMG]


    Teleported pretty much the whole way, not fighting unless it's a champion/unique pack.
    [​IMG]


    Ral is better than Tir, also always like to see Diamonds/Topaz's. :D
    [​IMG]


    This I'm going to toss to Bawz, I feel like he needs the fire res soon. :)

    Another Milbrega's, not grabbing this one though.
    [​IMG]

    Was easy, static'd, merc died, stayed very very far away and just blizzard when I could. :D Used all my health potions and had to town twice but nothing challenging.
    [​IMG]


    This is a nice upgrade to what I'm wearing now, Flawed Saphire x 2 Cap. xD
    [​IMG]


    Going to throw this over, see if it helps. :p
